There will be other issues my friend. You won’t get to set fires legally and you won’t be putting them out except as a volunteer. Will that work for you.
Nope, still going to do my thing. I'm a certified burn manager by the state of Mississippi and Louisiana, so I can charge (or do it free/beer on friends property) to prescribe burn. Also I'll still be available as a call when needed firefighter, that'll be a paid position when they call me. Also I have a friend who has a company that teaches fire classes and plan on seeing if I can help with that. I'm just retiring from going into an office. One year, five months, two days, or less, but who's counting.
